From the Desk of the Lay Director – January 2016

Frank McClelland2Greetings and Happy New Year!

I hope and pray that you all are warm and safe. Since it is snowing sideways, I thought I would write to you. I can’t believe it was 65 degrees on Christmas Day. This has to remind us that no matter how our circumstances change, our Lord doesn’t. As the new year begins, let us all make the same resolution…that is to draw closer to God.

Let’s also help others to do the same. I encourage you to sponsor someone on a Walk or Chrysalis. There are three great opportunities in January. Check the website for details.

We are going to have the January Community Gathering on Thursday, January 7th, at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Slaton. We will meet at 6:30 on the patio at the Mercy Center for the Young Women’s Chrysalis Send-off and when they go in to the conference room, we will go across the street to St. Joseph’s. Please bring food like you would for a normal Community. The girls on the Chrysalis will need it.

Also, as we have mentioned several times the last few months, I encourage you to get involved in some kind of accountability group if you are not already in one. You can call it a Reunion Group if you want. I promise it will make a positive difference in your life. There will be times when you will experience God’s presence like you did on your Walk.

See you January 7th!

De Colores,
Frank McLelland
